The town is home to the New Hampshire State Prison for Women.Hooksett was incorporated in 1727 as part of Kingston, Massachusetts. It became a separate parish of Kingston in 1801 and broke away completely from that town on February 22, 1828 to become an independent town named after Hook's Falls (now known as Robie's Country Store), which were located at the north end of what is now South Hooksett village. The falls powered several mills along their banks; one such mill building survives today near Route 3A and Main Street (New Hampshire Route 11).The Merrimack River provided water power for industry into the 20th century; however, most factories have closed since then due to increased costs associated with pollution controls required by state law or because they could not compete with larger plants elsewhere in New England or overseas. In addition, many textile jobs moved offshore during this period due to globalization pressures beginning around 1980.
